President George W. Bush
Is Now Impeachableby Joseph Hillier
Brothers and sisters for peace, I had thought my years of political and anti-war activism were over. I am quite old
now and dying of cancer, but events of the recent past require I at least try to offer some useful advice on how to
achieve the glorious goals of those opposed to war and militarism.
The cruel grasping hand of capitalism has never
before been so effectively poised to place the exploited and disenfranchised people of the world under the yoke and whip of
the ruling class with such finality. And the tool being used to achieve those goals is the brutal application of the most
sophisticated weaponry ever devised against those who have no means of defense, the poor weak nations including an ever
increasing percentage of completely innocent civilian victims, predominantly women and children. How anyone can enjoy their
wealth knowing it required burning thousands of innocent babies, ripping the limbs from thousands of innocent women, and draining
the lifeblood from thousands of innocent men is too sick to contemplate, but oh so sadly in our world today it is actually
The criminal American president George W. Bush, with a fully acquiescent Congress, and a cowardly profit
driven news media will, if unchecked, through unconstrained military force burn and bomb the world into a role of such deep
and pervasive submission to corporate greed that future generations may have no chance to ever again successfully rise in
opposition to the ugly policies of profit maximization over social responsibility, and a misplaced faith in cut-throat competition
over political cooperation and fundamental social decency.
What I am saying is that this is the moment that the gloves
must come off. Ultimately, we must now do whatever must be done to stop a complete corporate, militarist takeover of
the world. Ideally, this can be done without violence (and as we work for peace we, of course, could not resort to violence)
and within the law, but nothing must be allowed to stand in the way of success as we battle for the rights and future of the
world's defenseless peoples.
Due to the rapid unfolding of certain historical events, a monumental opportunity has
arisen. I believe at this special moment in time this remarkable opportunity should become a major focus of anti-war oriented
activity. At this moment we have the very real possibility of eliminating the figurehead of the intended neo-con, militarist,
corporate 'empire'. President George W. Bush is now impeachable. This is no interruptible dream or idealistic fantasy, Bush
really can be impeached. Those who pull the strings of the Bush puppet are at this moment terrified. It has become obvious
to them that Bush is vulnerable. Launching a full scale operation to impeach Bush would prove to be the most fruitful possible
means of eliminating the opportunity for a successful neo-con corporate, militarist grab for ultimate control over the
world's masses through economic power and force of arms.
The evidence is now sufficient, perhaps even overwhelming,
that the president of the United States and many within his administration are not only guilty of innumerable war crimes,
but they have also time and again blatantly committed “high crimes and misdemeanors” against the Congress and
people of America. Impeachment has now clearly become the only logical culmination of the Bush presidency. Of course the conservative,
Republican controlled Congress will at first be a major impediment against any attempt to impeach their President, but Bush
is neither loved nor respected by most Republicans. As the inevitability of a successful impeachment becomes obvious the rats
will desert the sinking ship in droves. None would be willing to sacrifice their political careers by backing Bush, a man
already well known by many in his party to be a weak, cowardly, little loser who would betray them and their principles in
an instant if he thought he could save himself by doing so.Some of the things we peace activists do best are organize the
masses into useful political action and use language effectively to initiate social change. These will prove to be very useful
tools in the campaign for impeachment. Everywhere Bush or high officials in his administration go they must face public calls
for their impeachment. If we cannot get into the halls to shout the call for impeachment we must at least be seen standing
outside the halls holding up signs calling for impeachment.
The pressure must be unrelenting. The word impeachment
and the idea of impeachment being the only logical course of action must be thrust into the consciousness of every American
every day. The idea leads to the action; think about it and it will happen, don't think about it and it won't happen. They
don't want us to think about it, and will do everything they can to stop us from thinking about it. We, on the other hand,
have the enduring responsibility for the safety of innocent people throughout the world to ensure that impeachment is constantly
prominent in the collective mind of the people.
Public impeachment meetings and rallies should be called across the
nation, signs should be posted on every wall, politicians should be lobbied daily, thousands of websites and millions of email
should carry the call for impeachment across the planet, citizens of foreign nations should pick up our call for impeachment
for they also have so much to lose, petitions calling for impeachment should be available on every street corner, and the
increasing body of evidence now so clearly demanding impeachment should be screamed into every available ear. All this must
be done and more. The impeachment of Bush is an eminently achievable goal for Bush's crimes go far beyond the comparative
misdemeanors of Nixon and Clinton. The evidence of brutality, torture, murder, corruption, conspiracy, and complete contempt
for all standards of human decency that is certain to come out during the impeachment of Bush and his high administrative
officials will forever discredit the evil neo-con, capitalist, corporate, militarist ideology. If the effort is put in to
bring an end to the Bush neo-con 'empire' impeachment is a virtual certainty.
Here is our chance to put an end to
war and bring peace to the world, and it may well be our last chance. If the future of the human race is not to be a future
of peace and love then the human race has no future!
Toward Peace and Freedom,
